The three books
The monk Tetsugen had a dream: to publish a book in Japanese, con-taining all the sacred verses. Determined to transform this dream intoreality, he began to travel the country in order to raise the necessarymoney.However, just as he had managed to get together enough money to be-gin work on the project, the river Uji flooded, provoking a catastrophe of gigantic proportions. When he saw the victims of the flood, Tetsugen re-solved to spend all the money he had collected on relieving the suffer-ings of the people.Afterwards, he resumed his struggle to make his dream come true: hewent from door to door, he visited the various islands of Japan, and oncemore he managed to raise the money he needed. When he returned, ex-ultant, to Edo, a cholera epidemic was sweeping the country. Again, themonk used the money to treat the sick and to help the families of thedead.Undeterred, he returned to his original project. He set off again and,nearly twenty years later, he published seven thousand copies of the sac-red verses.They say that Tetsugen actually published three separate editions of the sacred texts, but the first two are invisible.
